Mural artist Eric Grohe creates sumptuous works that transform drab city facades into three-dimensional environments. Using a specific silica bsed paint known as Keim Mineral that lasts for over 100 years, he has created an impressive portfolio on the sides and fronts of buildings across the world over the past 20 years. Working with a team of two trusted assistants, Eric plans and executes his designs using Google Earth and Global Imaging Satellites and digital photographs sent in by his prospective clients, to work out the sun’s position to allow for shadows. With each mural taking up to a year to complete from start to finish.
